‘Hora Pico’ is Mexico City’s rush hour and roughly lasts from 6 am – 9 am and 6 pm – 9 pm every day. You can avoid waiting in the subway, and also avoid getting your feet stamped on or getting elbowed in the face by simply avoiding this timing.

Tipping is very important in Mexico than anywhere else. As a general rule, always tip 10% in the Restaurants and Bars when they bring you a bill to your table. Manners matter!
